Hunton & Williams
Founded in 1901, Hunton & Williams LLP is a US law firm that employs more than 900 lawyers. It has been called "one of the most well-connected legal and lobbying firms in DC." The firm was founded in Richmond, Virginia and has 17 other offices throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. The firm expanded in Texas in 2007 by adding a group of almost 100 lawyers from the now-defunct Dallas firm, Jenkens & Gilchrist. In early 2011 the firm's controversial work for Bank of America and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce became public through a large disclosure of emails.
